    Question Terminal Command to Install Virtualbox

    i am already downloaded the .deb file, i don't like to use software center, all i need is open the terminal and type the command to locate the .deb and install it.
    So, what is the command, and does it work to install any software?

    Simply double click on the .deb file is the easiest.

    However...

    Use the cd command to get to where the package is located; then, use the following command to install the package
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i package-name.deb
    Replace package-name with the name of the virtualbox package.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    Staff have already edited previous posts of yours for font. Please use default font in the forum. Per Code-of-Conduct
    11. Use color and font properties for highlighting portions of your text, and not for all of the text in your post. Please use the default font color and properties unless you need to highlight or draw attention to a part of your post. ALL CAPS is interpreted as screaming. Funky non-uniform font size/color is difficult for those who are visually impaired. If you are having problems with reading the font, please adjust your browser.
